question this morning is: how much did other members of their family know? keep in mind that tamerlan, the 26-year-old suspect who was killed on thursday night moving into friday, that he was married. he was married to an american woman who became a muslim after she married him. they had a three-year-old daughter together. it's questionable now whether or not they were actually still together at the time of this bombing. some sources are saying that she, catherine, pictured here, had moved back home with her mother, judith, with the baby. and maybe that would be when tamerlan ended up going back to russia for those six months because if you're married and you have a small child, you might wonder, that would be suspicious to be gone for six months. >>steve: she is on the cover of the new york post today because she always dreamed of growing up, joining the peace corps and serving this country and others abroad. then she got tangled up with this guy, converted to islam. next thing you know, she dropped out. there is an interesting item in the "wall street journal" today that says essent

dead, tamerlan, and the traveled overseas to russia. traveled in the last six months was the latest information. what a student at bunker hill community college but dropped out. the father of a three-year-old girl. the older son. seven years older than the younger brother. dzhokar, who is still at large, and somebody who is relatively normal, relatively well-liked, welltively ingrained in society, well liked by friends in school, and turned him into somebody who can drop the bomb at the feet of an eight-year-old? >> seems inexplicable but we'll be hearing from behavioral scientists and specialists as the pieces of the puzzle put together as to what happened in both of their lives. perhaps their could be a hero syndrome. hero worship, and the younger brother fell under the spell of the heavily radicalized older brother. >> is there any way these two pulled this off by themselves? >> yes. yes. >> megyn: you don't rule out the notion these are two lone wolves working together, not connected to anybody else or anything else. no as an outsider from the investigation but having experience
's -- and the brother, tamerlan tsarnaev had the ploes sifs strapped to him. no indication that dzhokhar did. and he obviously tried to make an escape. so what does that tell you about his own state of mind and you know the idea some of these guys want to be a martyr to a case an if there is a cause and we don't know. some of them want to live. >> it tells me there's just what you said. there's a lot of people saying i'm willing to die but they don't necessariry want to die. this guy could have died. he could have leaned out of the boat and cranked out a couple more rounds and they would have put him down. but he chose not to. tactically they did everything they could to get him out of there alive. he could have committed that suicide. as long as we see the vid act of wanting to sur vief we have something to play with. we can dance with the devil to get information to save lives as long as we know this guy will not see the light of day outside of a prison again. >> where do you suppose they will take this line of questioning, clint? well, is that to me, chris? yeah. >> yeah. the things we're trying
